of katrina because fema had control. giving up on individuals helping neighbors, local government, that is a serious problem and why we are bankrupt. all the money that will go out, there is no money in the paint and -- bank so they will just borrow and print and centralize the power to be in washington dc part of that is bureaucratic and in sufficient. john: thank you for all you have done to wake people up. but i fear we will not have much convince -- success convincing people we don't need fema. even though government fails part instinct leads us to assume washington has the best. they don't. they fail all the time. fema fails constantly. after hurricane hugo one senator called it bureaucratic jackasses to get the hell out of the way. they said prove it but after hurricane andrew even in your times reported it is unclear who was in charge of the relief ever. mikulski said the response was seen as a disaster itself. they said they would fix it then came hurricaneatrina and nobles to thousand people died. fema often got in the way. the extra hotel hired buses but fema took them a
this firsthand, i went down to help out with katrina thing in september. it's weird. because you are dealing with people that lost everything and it's kind of hard to imagine that if you haven't done it yourself. basically, you know, she's looking at her curtains here, she probably hand-stitched those things. maybe they have been hanging there the last 5 or 6 years. everything in the house is wrecked, photos, keepsakes, it's a tough thing. and people deal with this kind of stress in different ways. we as disaster workers, we see it all the time. but we have a word we use, professional. we try to be professional around people that have suffered a loss like this because they don't want us to come -- you don't want to go into somebody's house and be joking and having a good time. it's unprofessional. when you are dealing with somebody who has a loss like this, just think of the word professional. that's what we try to do. this sort of body language here, she's trying to comfort here, do you think she's buying it? not with that body language. she's not really buying it. some people won't. some p
and then paid the price after katrina, and this president put it back up again and what not political people in, and it is paying off this week, it really is paying off. >> colby? >> it also draws a sharp contrast between the two candidates. here you have president obama citing fema as the vehicle to coordinate the federal effort, and you had mitt romney last year on the campaign saying he would get rid of fema, he would turn the responsibilities back to the states, showing no appreciation for the role that fema place. >> this is a nightmare for political candidate romney. >> it is, especially if you are going after swing votes, woman voters in ohio, the so-called waitress a vote. they want a president who will care for them and be a guardian. this is an ad for a president who worries about you. it is terrible for romney. it stopped his momentum. maybe the polls or all wrong and romney is going to win anyway, but if you looking at the polls right now, obama has got it. >> did ghani have momentum, was that republican --romney of momentum, or was that republican spin? >> he definitely add momentu
a truck all the way to new york. pringle has done this before. >> katrina, new york, florida. >> reporter: bringing hem to those in need. >> providing supplies to the clients and getting around will be difficult. >> reporter: this is mike's first big trip to a disaster. >> when i get to new york i'll check in, contact my point of contact and get an assignment. >> reporter: which is simple shelter and feed those who need it. as they pack up and say good- bye pringle doesn't want his wife to worry too much. >> he's done it a few times i'm responsible for training him. >> reporter: the trip takes about 3 days to get to new york and they could stay there for as long as 2 weeks. reporting from burlingame cbs 5. >> giants fans are basking in the series win. wait till you hear how much those pieces of confetti cost. are." a strong opening for the new disney film, "wreck-it ralp" and superstorm sandy may hae helped. schools in the storm zone were closed frid, to the . >>> superstorm sandy may have helped. schools in the storm zone were closed friday and parents took kids to the movies to

as katrina, which was obviously devastating to an entire region and probably greater in terms of its impact than the current storm, you did see it in the numbers during that one quarterback in 2005 but the rebound was extremely quick. so you can barely see the effect of the storm in gdp numbers after that. and the one nice thing about our economy is it does tend to be able to recover quite quickly. >> austan, what's your take? on top of everything you have this gas problem as well. everybody wanting gasoline and unable to get it. >> my mother-in-law is out in new jersey, she got her power back on thursday. i was happy that she was okay. i think just the way we do the numbers has got goofy implication that your house gets knocked down, you rebuild a new one, you're no better off than you were before but that counts as an increase to the gdp because they are counting the part you're doing right now, not what was already there. >> what about the infrastructure story, governor cuomo said when new york rebuilds, it will rebuild better. is this an opportunity to make significant changes to the in
of sandy, new jersey and new york were a cold katrina. i believe that it was -- i thought that was a fantastic ." but now, really, all eyes, and i want you to get to this c'mon ohio. everybody is wondering what will happen in ohio. extensive polling. people thinking seriously about where the southern part of the state will go, where the northern part will go. can romney capture the areas that are largely coproducing to act when you look at ohio, what counties will you be watching to mark? what do you think will happen? >> rather than counties got three big cities and counties that surround them. one is cleveland, the democratic stronghold. obviously columbus and cincinnati, which is more republican. at the end of the day here, this is a state that has a tendency to switch. you have to remember that governor casey won the governorship. george w. bush won the presidency back again in 2004 in ohio. it is the bellwether. it's not just -- everybody always wants to say no republican has ever won -- well, no democrat has ever won either. can be lost to nixon in 1960, but otherwis
response administration missteps in the past, the slow response to hurricane katrina, the formaldehyde ligand trailers purchased for katrina victims to live in. and now it is becoming more and more clear hurricane sandy may well be another example of the government blowing it. it's a staten island resident had a same complaints residents of new orleans had seven years ago. where is fema when we need them. other problems that liberal bureaucracy huggers like to ignore. according to a new analysis from the heritage foundation, fema dollars after all taxpayer dollars look more and more like a goody bag, honeypot for presidents to raise. think of them as a political porkbarrel spending agency because that is unfortunately what it has become. the disaster declarations are on the rise. reagan had 28 per year on average. unr nine under bill clinton. obama, 153. he takes the cake. heritage foundation rates to put th in perspective in somewhere in america in 2011 disaster occurred every day and a half. so strong it required the intervention of the federal government because each of these disast
. but things have changed, haven't they? >> the whole story really is the cold katrina that is going on up there in parts of new york and part was new jersey as you just reported. i think this has gone way beyond a happy chappy political photoop event and has become something terbelieve for a lot of people. it is almost for a moment outside of the realm of politics as they suffer through. >> i was staggered to see a poll yesterday on the david gregory show said 65 percent of the country approved the president's handlingly the storm. have a talked to the people it is impossible for me to see how someone gets high grades because they put on a jeans jacket and walk through the rubble. >> it was early on in the days of the storm, it looked like government was in control and the president was there walking around new jersey. but very quickly, this turned into a story whose headline in time government didn't work so well, didn't it? they didn't get in the water or blankets and they ran out of the gas and as for the electrical situation, it is not a katrina where it is warm outside. people are co
years, after katrina. back to you. >> all right, dan. >>> disturbing images still out there. we've been seeing the long unprecedented lines at gas stations all over the areas of devastation after hurricane sandy. and gas shortages could make getting to the polls tomorrow a challenge to voters inside the storm zone. abc's alex perez joins us from hasbrouck heights, new jersey. with the very latest on that critical situation. good morning, alex. >> reporter: hey, good morning, elizabeth. it's bright and early. and check this out. there's already a long line of cars waiting to get to the gas station down the street. but this station here, like so many others, they're completely tapped out from those trying to get their generators running but help from the federal government could not come soon enough. overnight, the relief's slowly rolling in. fema gas distribution tankers already at ten centers across new york and new jersey. others urge residents to finally fill up. the federal agency has delivered 8 million gases of gasoline and another 28 million gallons is headed to the region and tap
of hurricane katrina. this is a response and a relief effort that is woefully inadequate. we have people without gasoline. we have people without power. now it's almost a million and a half people. came down about a half million from the weekend. it is a very tough job. but let's be clear. we have an emergency situation here in this federal government is not responding. it is not doing what it should help. we are supposed to have gasoline supplies and hundreds of thousands of people -- they don't have power to run their generators. we are supposed to have gasoline for the people, the motorists, the commuters, those were trying to go about their work lives without heat and without power in their homes and their kids are not in any case to be in school. and we have a president who is not responding to the emergency. he is campaigning. i understand the conflict. but my goodness, part of what he is required to do and part of what this governor, chris christie should be thanking him for, is actually being effective. that hasn't happened at. megyn: lightning chris christie was so fawning? lou:
and robust enough to respond to three nuclear events in the same day. it is clear from hurricane katrina and hurricane sandy this is a passing slow incompetent bureaucracy utterly overwhelmed it in new orleans. what it does to president obama we as a nation need to demand a very, very dramatically over hauled department. as to obama's situation i think he probably peaked about three hours after chris christie you go hugged him. he looked bipartisan looked like the commander-in-chief. he was doing the president's job not the candidate's job. it is accelerated by this absurd comment about the revenge. i am sure the president will take it back as he could. it is so jarringly destructive and i think it sent such a bad signal to most americans about how small minded and mean spirited president obama was capable at times. >> i was stunned at the revenge comment. mitt romney hit the right cone said no i am running for the american people. let me run this again. i want to run them side by side. it is so glaring the difference. you can see in their closing arguments here the president is on the
the potential return of fema trailers like those used in the wake of hurricane katrina and used not without a lot of controversy. >>> gas lines hours long stretched through the weekend across the tri-state area. in some cases, stations using gas-powered generators to pump fuel out of the ground. it could be several more days before the country's fuel shortage is resolved. in new york city where 145,000 residents still without power. yesterday's marathon was canceled. that happened for the first time in 40 years. but it didn't stop hundreds of runners from doing the right thing, showing up where the race was supposed to begin in statin ilan. instead of a marathon, they ran a relief effort, jogging through neighborhoods to help dig out debris and offer supplies and good for them. i actually went to staten island on saturday, myself, got a firsthand look. you jump on the staten island ferry, catch the s-78 bus. if you want to help, they could use a lot of hands. it is absolutely wiped out. the first thing you notice is the neighborhood coming together. people literally emptying the contents of
city. however if you go back seven years to hurricane katrina the news then about that storm was how president bush and fema and michael brown and everybody failed. you never heard about mayor nagan and governor belong could he. now the situation is reversed and it's bloomberg taking the blame for the storm and not doing better for it as opposed to president obama. if this were bush right now you'd be seeing a split screen of bush campaigning, and then people being miserable in their wrecked houses back home in queens. jon: what about that? we heard from david lee miller earlier today, a hispanic woman getting up there in years complaining how absolutely miserable it is where she's live. why should that not be president obama's fault as it was president bush's fault? >> katrina was a much larger national issue than with all due respect to queens. jon: why? >> because katrina was -- the magnitude of katrina in terms of what it represented nationally was not specific to a neighborhood in new york. overall the reaction to sandy has been -- jon: so the president is not -- i mean he's the
disaster we suffered, let's look back to even 2005 with katrina and some other hurricanes and natural disasters. >> guest: i think you will see it's too early to make that assessment because even now things are being ramped up, i think you would say. it's never satisfactory for those out of service. but in terms -- we're going to have vulnerabilities, you know? when you have towers, when you have, you know, the infrastructure, there are going to be -- they're going to be vulnerable to natural disasters, of course. but i think all in all in terms of the response, what i'm hearing, on what i'm sensing is people see that, um, deployments have been made as soon as it was safe to do so and that a lot of the systems worked as best as they could under these circumstances. so i think all in all you will see some improvement in terms of the results at the end of the day. >> host: also joining our conversation on "the communicators" is paul kirby who is the senior editor with "telecommunications reports." >> one of the issues is back-up power. >> guest: yes. >> a few years ago the fcc adopted r
to bail out new orleans after hurricane katrina, belmar, new jersey is returning the favor. >> get this water out of our town and back in the atlantic. >> reporter: belmar mayor said sandy swept his town over seven city blocks. what sandy did not flood she basically trashed. >> now we're in a recovery phase, getting the water out. at the same time we have heavy machine engineer that's moving the debris. >> reporter: the streets are being cleared. the sand trap left behind is being erased. >> we're trying to get power to the laundromat. >> reporter: nobody has electricity so the mayor had charging stations installed. >> council is receiving distribution. >> reporter: he's running the distribution center that's providing warmth and food that some people in bell hard have. >> what's it took at home right now? >> my home is cold. my brothers are hungry. >> as you go out into belmar with your assigned duty. >> reporter: everybody here has a job. >> i make grill cheese sandwiches. >> reporter: the mayor is telling restaurants to open and give their food away for free. >> we're here for t
without power in the south five days after hurricane katrina. some relief for those in manhattan, new york city mayor michael bloomberg promising that most of the burroughs power will be returned by midnight tonight. but any progress on that front has been severely undercut by long lines again -- attestations the new york governor saying he signed an executive order waing a requirement that fuel tankers register and pay taxes before unloading insisting his order we will help get gasoline to consumers faster. it is estimated that two-thirds of gasoline stations in new jersey and new yok are not in business right now. however, it is little comfort for people stuck for long hours in long lines to with no guarantee that they will get gas at the end of that line. but some people, at least some are beginning to dry. this is a very serious and frustrating matter for literally millions of people in this region. turning now to benghazi, almost two months after the terrorist attack that killed four americans, the cia as released a new timeline, a timeline of its actions suggesting it payed a larger
off the ball and got accustomed to thinking going his way. katrina happened in the second term, and they just are not as responsive. good folks leave. so the test for this president is given the conditions of the country, how do i get the best people in here and probably shake up my team and be responsible to some of the criticism i have received. in the second term you have a chance to make your mark. the president is smart enough to know that he's not at this stage going to be remembered as a great president. if he wants to be remembered as a great president, not just the first african-american president, he has to take it to the next level in the next term. >> all right. always an honor to have you here. thank you very much. >> you'll get over that. i promise. >> up next, our final state of the day in the spin, and i hear there's some big changes. people want to change their maps again. we have a big show for you live from democracy plaza as "the cycle" rolling on for monday, november 5th. kornacki says it sounds orwelian. i say i love america. >>> time for your business ent
katrina. he says as many as 40,000 people were left homeless by the storm though that number is worst case scenario. public schools in new york and new jersey are hoping to return students to some sense of normalcy. some cools will reopen today and others possibly by wednesday. people are still waiting in line for hours to get gas. the defense department has set up stations in the new york city areaway 10-gallon limit. -- some schools will reopen today. >>> some breaking news from the sandy storm zone. a small earthquake has struck in northern new jersey. the u.s. geological survey says the 2.0 uake hit at 1:19 this morning in ridgewood, new jersey. some residents reported hearing a lot boom when the quake struck but for reports of damage this morning. >>> coming up next, changes are coming to d.c.'s speed camera fines. >> the mayor makes a move to lower what drivers will pay but the battle to make them even lower is not over just yet. fox 5 morning news is back in a moment.

of hurricane katrina, senator mary landrieu joins us next. >>> apple sold 3 million ipads in the last three days but not all are ipad minis and shares of apple are near bear territory. you have a buy rating on the stock. brian, always good to see you. in terms of the release, the optics for apple in terms of interpreting news these days has been glass half full. when the release came out and they released a combined number and in other words ipad mini plus ipad sales, i almost felt like they were trying to hide something. was the number a good one? >> it's a great number because it is a doubling if you look at ipad mini and fourth generation from march numbers of wi-fi from third generation which was 1.5. this was not a wi-fi and cellular launch which we saw in march, this is wi-fi only. second thing is ipad mini is significantly supply constrai d constrained. 60% of the stores we contacted were sold out. >> at the same time isn't it important for you as an analyst to understand what exactly that mix is. it makes a big difference when it comes to margins. ipad mini is a different margin th
katrina he would have seen a different outcome. it was not preordained this would work in obama's favor. it's the way he handled the storm and reassured people and has not let problems fester and worked with fema, reformed fema, and christie and cuomo to get help to people as quickly as possible. even though it's still not reaching everyone. hugo can speak to that. >> i just think it's strange to hear the republicans talking about excuses for not winning the day before the election. i mean, it really is -- i mean, there's going to be a lot of talk after the election obviously, depending on who wins, about why they blew it. >> they believe in preemption. the reality is, they're trying to gin up the excuse now to figure out after what you think may happen after that storm of obama blows through, but i think it speaks to this enthusiasm thing. look, i'm a minister. i do a lot of wedding vows that are renewed. you never have the same enthusiasm as you're ru nug the vows as when you're married. but -- >> the lights are on. i mean come on you don't have the googoo approach to affection. >> th
katrina the price of gas went up, but that's because that storm struck in a different region of the country. >> well, yes indeed. 25% of the nation's refining capacity is on the gulf coast. katrina was a category 5 storm which meant refineries near the coast took a lot more wind, a lot more water, although sandy was properly named a super storm, it didn't have the sustained wind that we see on the gulf coast with a category 5, and so you didn't have anywhere near the damage to the production facilities. but what makes the new york area, new jersey, new york, connecticut so complicated, matt in, terms of the supply system is you don't have that many refineri refineries. therefore you rely on pipelines and ports, and the ports took quite a bit of damage. you couldn't get barges and ships in there right away. >> right. >> the refineries weren't too badly damaged, but the pipeline was also shut down for a while because it exits on the water. >> let me ask you this then as someone who knows the industry and the delivery system very well. how long do you think this situation is goi
return of fema trailers like those used in the wake of hurricane katrina. gas lines hours long stretched through the weekend across the tri-state area. in some cases stations are now using gas-powered generators to pump the fuel out of the ground. new york governor andrew cuomo says it could be several more days before the region's fuel shortage is resolved. in new york city, where 145,000 households are still without power, yesterday's marathon, of course, as we mentioned, was canceled for the first time in 40 years. that didn't stop, though, as we mentioned at the top of the show hundreds of runners from showing up where the race was supposed to begin in staten island, hit hard there, instead of a marathon, they literally ran a relief effort. jogging through neighborhoods to help dig out debris and offer supplies. and willie, you spent some time on staten island over the weekend as well. >> yeah, i went down on saturday. i went over there. i hopped on the staten island ferry, caught the s-78 bus. these are some of the pictures i took. they're not professional. i just took them with my
behind katrina, 9/11 and hurricane andrew. with the final tally still months away the total costs impacted in how soon the power and transportation grids are back to normal. the sooner they are the lower the final price. as for the firms covering the claims, earnings will take a hit but analysts say the industry is well reserved to cover sandy with over $500 billion in capital the industry has funds to pay, its premium increases over the last year and decline in catastrophe claims helped to bulk up their financial profile. the storm's impact a negative hit to fourth quarter results so after it may help lift profits by getting insurers cover to raise premiums. morgan stanley is expecting to see sandy cut earnings by 26%. deutsche bank expects chub, travelers and allstate to see sandy cut shareholders equity by 2%. aig says it's auto eartoo early say. travelers and chub making no comment on potential losses for now but like all the others, they have adjusters fanned out across the northeast to reach clients. state farm says as of saturday it received more than 63,000 how many owners
today is all about the response between sandy and katrina and just laying out there saying -- you know, big government isn't the enemy. you know. he quotes the old ronald reagan line where reagan got cheers. i'm from the government. i'm here to help. >> stephanie: rude, chris christie proved obama's point better than anyone ever could have that he has always been bipartisan. has always reached you know, across the aisle to help anybody who will work with him. >> yep. that's one of the missing narratives from this campaign. >> stephanie: it blew romney's whole closing argument. like that scene in "brute almighty" -- "bruce almighty." >> someone in the chat room said we have a chris christie like character and that would be alan grayson. that's a very good point. >> yeah. if we could get the right to stop, you know, stop trying to swat him down every time that he gets some traction. >> stephanie: yeah. exactly. oh, that's just -- that's just rude. >> stephanie: a lot of these -- he's up against a tea bagger. h
abysmal. fema is as much a failure now as it was at the time of katrina. i do not understand why there is not enough water in new york. all you have to do to get water to new york is put it on an airplane and fly it to kennedy air pour. all you have to do to get more generators it put it on an airplane and fly it to kennedy airport. you will you make sure you have enough gasoline is have a plan to get gas to new york. obviously they didn't preplan for the water. they didn't preplan for the generators. they didn't preplan for the gasoline. the answer is they didn't preplan. what do we have fema for if not for preplanning. the president getting all the credit, the minute he got dread and -- credit and pat on the back. same situation as benghazi. he loses focus. goes back to campaigner in chief rather than commander-in-chief. bill: this was you on friday night. westchester, ohio, southwestern part of the state. i was at the rally when i heard you say the following about president obama. >> he told us he would resign if he did this poorly. do you remember that? do you remember that h
in partnership with fema after katrina. we knew it would be important in large scale disasters. and we already have nearly a thousand homes for rent. click an the fema housing portal from our website and you can get access to that. we've also been working on identifying particular units available to seniors or other who may have medical service needs as well and those will be absolutely critical resources going forward. we are also beginning to focus on the longer term process of rebuilding. i spoke to some families that were already asking what resources are there to rebuild. obviously craig has talked about the importance of registering with fema. we've already seen over 160,000 families register. that's critical. we also want to make sure families know first of all they'll be safe while they think about their rebuilding. i've directed all f.h.a. lenders to impose a more torme on foreclosers in disaster areas. we don't want families to be victimized twice once by the storm and twice by the foreclosure. we want to make sure as they work with insurance companies they're not taken advantage of.
